The losses are difficult to eStlmite, be-

scores of bridges were deirtrojrad. A*

Of course .<»uch procedure, In the event

stand for a moment as legal, even the 
so-called oftlcers of the organlr.atlon 
having no police authority, and thnir 
assumption of the functions of the 
lower courts being entirely Indefensible. 1 
No one has as yet raised a protest to 
the attorney-general or to the police, 
however, and until they do so, Interfer-

operating advantageously In the pre-

l.AKAVVn'TK, Ind., April 8.— All day 
long Colonel Roosevelt fought as ha.rd 
,18 ho could for victory In tomorrow's 
presidential primary In Illinois. In his 
opinion, as he expressed It today, the 
result of the fight will be of first im- 
l>ortance in determining the outcome of 
his whole campaign. When it was all 
over a/nd the Colonel was ready to board 
his trnin he said: 

"My hnt Is In the ring and It Is going 
to stay In the ring." 

In one of h!» sneaches today the 
Colmiel said: "We look to Illinois to set 
tlie keynote of this cempa.Ign. Illinois 
stands in the most important position 
of any state In this campelgn, " 

In some other states he charged his 
supporters hnd been defeated by tho un- 
fair cactlcs of federal office holders and 
by other improper methods. "It you ere 
against me in a fair vote." hp said, "I 
shall hnve nothing to say, but If you 
are tor me and the bosses record you as 
ngalnst me, I slinll havo a great dpnl 
to say. " 

The Colonel assailed Congressman .Mc- 
Klnley, campaign manager for President 
Taft, In his own itlptricl, and put him- 
self on record as opposed to President 
Teft in regard to reciprocity. The Col- 
on*! made nearly a do«en fighting 
speeches. The days run took hlin through 
the districts of Congressman McKlnley 
and former speaker C^annon. He made 
one speech under the shadow of Mc- 
Klnley's home In Champaign, and a few 
hours later passed Mr. Cannon's dwell- 
ing In Danville end made a speech a 
f«w blocks away. After leaving the 
state he made severel specchee in In- 
di«na. The c^rowdfi wlilch heard Colonel

LONDON, April 8.— Tha Sunday 
Observer says, editorially: "Indica- 
tions are that Canada is ready to take 
her proper place as the oldest daugh- 
ter In tho empire. While duly noting 
Hon. Mr. Borden's dl!3claimer of the 
programme article recently published 
in the Quebec Chronicle, we contend 
that the principles it foreshadows are 
so admirable, its effect at this Junc- 
ture is so salutary, and lita scheme is 
so full of the right spirit of imperial- 
ism that Premier (Borden will do less 
justice to himself and his patriotic 
ministers if he does not m^ke it his 
own in its main principles. Whether 
tho time Is yet ripe for an imperial 
admiralty board remains to bo seen. 
The forthcoming conference between 
the admiralty and Mr. ILazen will be 
critical, and there will he need to 
speak plain truth as among friends."

It is clear why Mr. McBrlde la Justlfled

Tuesday, April 9, 


We find m some of our eastern Liberal

effect that British Columbia has assum- 
ed too heavy a burden in adopting the

We are inclined to think this the most 
imporunt statement yet made public i* 
connection with traRlo by way of the 
Canal. BritlHh Columbia is vitally in- 
terested in it. A very Ui^o number of 
British emigrants would prefer this pro-

but the long rail Journey deters many of

It has been said that thf continuance 
of the dual monarchy of Austrian- Hun- 
gary, and with it the peace of Kurope, 
was dependent upon the life of Wanr 
Josef, the aged Emperor of Auatrid 
and King of Hungary. Kecent debates 
In the Hangarlan parliament oonflrra 
thla view. Recently the Emperor 
.threatened to abdicate the Hungarian 
throne, because ot interfereuoo with his 
military prerogatives. Thie led to a 
discussion in the course of which very 
violent attacks were made upon the 
king, emperor and his heir presump- 
tive, /the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, 
and especially upon the latter, 

Austria and Hungary have been 
united ever alnoe the Pragmatic Sanc-

Frans Josef is now in his eiffhty-sec- 
ond year. His Ufe has been far from a 
happy one, but he has constantly la- 
bored to diaoherge the duties ot his 
high and responsible office with an eye 
single to the welfare of his peopl-s. He 
Is now In the 68th year of his reign. 
His heir presumptive Is in his 49th 
year. Although a man of much ability. 
he is said not to be popular. He is a 
nephew to the Emperor.

The explanation of the change in pub- 
lic opinion of six counties in Michigan on 
the local option question, whereby there 
wab a reversion to the licence system, is 
not dimcult to suggest. The change 
i» duo to tho failure to enforce the law. 
The trouble with nmny of those who 
favor the abolition of llr;uor licences is 
that they do not realize how necessary 
it is to piiiviiie for the enforcement of 
the law. No statute ever was framed 
that could enforce itself automutically. 
and those persons who seek to bring 
local option Into effect should also make 
up their mind that the ooromunity must

discussing the principle of reoiprbolty 
the Colonist contended that the details 

ot the arraasement were seeond^ry In 
their importance, and that the real ques- 
tion Involved was the making of an 
agreement with the United States. We 
pointed out that Canada had no guar- 
antee of permanency, and that a new 
party coming into power In that coun- 
try might reject any plan to which its 
predecessors might agree. The correct- 
ness of this view Is borne out by the 
fact that Col. Roosevelt, a candidate for 
the presidential nomination, taken a 
diametrically opposite view from that 
held by President Taft on this tiuestlon. 

I'rediction.s of an uprihing among the 
Indians of the Naas are again revived 
by Mr. John 11. I'lsher. a well known 
mining man. who has Just arrived in 
Vancouver via PrInco Rupert. He 
states that Alexander Wallace and 
Fred Renworlh, who have been pros- 
pcctlr.s on the Naas, hHV« Jii«t come 
from that locality and stale that the 
Indians are making serious threats 
against any whites who may come Into 
their particular territory. They said 
that, having made their way without 
Incident up the Naas river estuary as 
far as Mill Bay, they were proceeding 
Inland when met by such hostile ac- 
tions on the part of the Indians that 
they were forced to retrace their 
course. Fifteen other white men were 
also turned back by the. Naas Indians, 
who threatened to shoot any who pass-

by the eastern press, but have hitherto

The people of British Columbia ara

Ifirger scale than hae been provided for, 
and It will stand by the administration 
which has the courage and foresight to 
provide It. Heavy liabilities have not 
been assumed. Up to date the bonds of

In all probability not one of us realises 
what the opening of this waterway will 
m.ean to Western Canada. 


The local Lweral organ says that Mr. 
McBrlde's railway policy goes "to an 
extent far surpassing the requirements 
of the country." May we be x>ermltted 
to ask which of the railways secured 
by this policy It regards as unneces- 
sary? Here Is a Hat of them: 

The Canadian Northern Pacific from 
Yellow Head Pass to Vancouver. 

The Canadian Northern Pacific from 
Victoria to Barkley Sound and thence 
towards the north end of the Island. 

The Kettle River Valley railway from 
Midway to Merrltt. 

The Kettle River Valley railway from 
Coldwater Junction to Hope. 

The Canadian Northern from Kam- 
loops to Vernon and Keiowna. 
The Kootenay Central railway. 
The Kaslo and Slocan railway. 
The extension of the £3. A N. railway 
towards the north end of the island. 

The railway from Vancouver to Fort 
George. ' ' 

The ferry connections between the 
Uland and the mainland. 

If this policy surpasses the require- 
ments of the. province, some one or more 
of these railways must be superfluous. 
May we respectfully inquire which of 
them our contemporary so oharaeterisea? 

In Toronto on the 2nd. there was a 
heavy . snow dnd freezing weather. The 
daily dbspatches tell of unuaually se- 
vere floods on the Mississippi. One day 
last week Manitoba had its heaviest 
snowfall of the year. In Los Angeles a 
weelt ago the weather was decidedly, 
cooU All along the Pacific coast the 
season has been unusually dry. There 
is no record of a warmer winter In the 
Yukon and Alaeka. The same thing Is 
true of northern British Columbia. Here 
in Victoria we have a remarkable win- 
ter In respect to precipitation, which 
has been low, and as regards brigHt 
sunshine, which has been exceptionally 
great. We have praotlcally i»ad no se- 
vere weather »ia<* «Se'WM»w atorm 
that came early in November. Fifty 
years ago the coast regions of British 
Columbia experienced the aaverest win- 
ter known by white men. This has been 
evident from the dally reproduction ot 
Items from .the Colonist af that date. 
It may be recalled that one of these 
atated that a number of cattle bad been 
loat in Saaalcta by rsa»o»W l*e wea- 
ther. In the r«pk>rt of tha explorations 
nuede by the lata Mr. Hompbrey in the 
Homathoo valley in the fall df 1801, 
he teUs of the severity of the season. 
He speaks of th« Indians llvtng In 
huts covered by the snow, out of which 
they emerged naked as h« and hlsipartr 
went by. The late Oeorge Holyoke. of

company In connection with this tall- 
way, but we venture to aay no one will 
deny that If this company should de- 
fault tipon Its bonds and the province 
had to take It over, any of the trans- 
continental liWHI KfOuid. gladly give a 
handsome bonus for the , privilege of 
securing the railway and relieving the 
province of any liability In resiMSct 
thereto. No such eventuality Is likely 
ever to occur, for a north and south line 
tiirough British Columbia Is certain to 
I !(>ve a very profitable railway. 

We claim, therefore, tnat the liabil- 
ities assumed by the province to secure 
railway construction are nominal and 
rot actual, and hence that the ability 
of the Legislature to extend assistance 
111 necesnary railway lines Is far from 
1. iriK exhausted. If the construction of 
ri.llwRys in this province can be secured 
on such terms as were accepted by the 
( >.mpanlo» that have been aided, the 
government need not hesitate to go 
phead. The worst that 'an possibly 
iK.ppen in any case is that the province 
might have to take over the lines, and 
tiieso .-it 135,000 a mile would be a bar- 
KHln. If the province did not wlah to

of them to the transcontinental compen-

was Important to the cause to which I 
dedicated It; but the work has been well 
begun and nothing can atop It now."

been welcomed, and thoae who might 
have brought it «bout would haVo been 
made wealthy for life. But nothing

of duty. When he was urged to take

It occurs to us that a great deal too 
much is made over what la due ^ the

who went in the field with any other

from duty performed. The modern no-

ought to. he should be given a pecuniary 
reward If. Altogether fallacious.

showing a keen rivalry in securing de-

The officers and non-commissioned

that there are numbers of young men 
who would very gladly Join the mllltla 
if only they knew how to set about it. 
Many of them arc too shy to go down 
to the drill hall and offer their ser-

apply for the purpose of getting en-

found It Impossible to hold a meeting 

although counting numerous supporters 

In that mining centre. Tha explanation 

is found in the fact tlmt the mining

owns the entire town, what it says goes.

the hero (or victim) of the story bcinR 
Mr. William Murray, who has for .some 
time been prospecting at One-milo 
creek, forty-two miles out of Merrltt. 
When the provincial elections came on, 
on the 28th of last month. Mr. Murray 
hiked all the way In to town, through 
snow that reached to al>ove his knees 
in many places, In onler to cast his 
vote for Mr. J. P. McOonnell, Then he 
hiked bock again to his claim. . 

"1 always said that whenever he ran 
for parliament in Yale I'd vote for him 
If 1 had to walk a hundred miles to 
do It," Mr. Murray explained on his ar- 
rival In Merrltt, "and here I am." 

All of which goes to show tUat the

Justice had then given notice included 
two for British Colunilslu, with sal-

That there has been a mlHunder- 
Htandlng or misinterpretation of the 
Ottawa mlniHter's resolution is said by 
Attorney General Bowser to be 
obvious. Not only Is a salary of ?2.000 
too small to be contemplated In con- 
nection with a Judgeship in this prov- 
ince with its high cost of living— tlie 
stipend of the county court Judges is 
now $250 per month, qr $3,000 per an- 
num—but there has been no reuuest 
from British Columbia recently for an 
enlargement - of the county court 
bench, nor has the province adopted 

by the federal authority. ; ,

Meek, the «ew catcher with pride. Hi

done, that he is a fat 300-oounder gives

If all the experiences of all the fish-

cannot be done for two reasons. It^ 
would be impossible to get all Easter

Of the question to publish their stories 
in detail. 

• Even allowing a little license 'or un-

There Are a Few Waterfronts Left In 
Our Portage Inlet Sub-division 

ShQMnog a corner of thi» Subdivision and a bit of Portage Inlet. A beautiful place to build 
a home. Thes? are all big lots, about quarter acres, and would make splendid homesites. Al- 
r ttdy a n umber of people have decided to build in this subdivision. It certainly would be 
siljdyible to build a home on one of these waterlronts, and then enjoy bathing, fisKhg, boJrt- 
tng, etc on the sheltered waters of the Inlet.. .There is no reason why ypu should not, bVjj 
cause prices and terms are both reasonable in this subdivirion. In fact, on comparison. 
Sth^^ lota will be found to be as cheap as acreage in tihis vicijiity.

An interesting story was told tty

(he visit Of the schooj|er Hilda R.. 
Capt. J^An— a former Victoria sealef 
—to €fa,mpben frtand, which with 
MacQuarle Islania, lying off the south of 
the J»e>y Zealand ^froup, hava seal 
rookerl^. Law yeSr when, the Hilda

inland th^jiealwa left a boat and a 
quantity "oCr^ijfft at. the Island, and ar- 
rangementa %ere made with' some 
liierderd who tend sheep there to KUl

feiwalt the coming i:,o3t the SMa R. 
: t^Ck in lialirax one «« the triral seal- 
iir.Vlieard of the business and sat -d^wn 
lul wrote a letter to "the governor of 
Xew Zealand with the result that a 
cutter, with i|" captain who was for- 
merly an offi'Ser on one of the wAr- 
.ships on the ;Esaulmalt station in coifti"* 
ininil, was sent to wait for the 
Hilda it. . ^ ' ■[' 

The captain of the cutter knew €apt. 
Ryan. He had met him in t?efing iea 
when he had boarded on6 of tlife 
schooners from Victoria of which 
Capt. Ryan was In command, and ha 
waited, thinking t^ x§ i^| |i Bt«> M<'(!iiaM>ilii6. 
i'.nco, but the Hild«i"^;; WTivca wbWJ 
the cutter had gone back to a New 
5f:ealand port for provisions. Thlnkihp 
the sealers might come during his ves- 
sfl's ul>sence the captain left a letter 
fur Capt. Ryan, and when the Hilda R. 
was .=een off the Island one of tha 
herders put off In u saiUioat and hand- 
el it to the captain. It said In effect 
that the captain of the cutter regretted 
his arrival during hla absence and 
I'oped to get back in time to get him 
anyhr.w. The Hilda R. lost no time in 
I)ieking up as many pelts as posslblo 
and getting away— and Jt Is doubtful 
It" she will g'j biiok.

Many of these Isles In the far sodtft 
once were thick with seals. Whei^ 
Macquar'.c Island was discovered by a 
Sydney vessel a party left on the 
Island killed no less than 80.000 seals. 
The massacres made by these earlier 
sealers left meagre herds, and the voy- 
ages made during the past few years 
show that little seal life was left.

now less than tens. • •

New York Market Encouraged 
by Settlement of British Coal 
Strike — Rise of Irregular 

NEW YOnK. April 8. — Tho itock market 
today resumed Its activity and advanced. 
The rise was very irregular, being punctu- 
atd by ficciuenl pauses and set-backs, from 
profit taking and renewed aggressions by 
the short Interests. The market was en- 
couraged by the »tateniont that the Eng- 
lish cual strike %'a8 settled. 

United States Steel and Union Pacific 

were the teadera of th« «»rly movament 

.with gains of OM to tmp SOlBta in more 

Mian a score otjOtrnp l>Hm«B. New high 

-t»cord8 for ther-ygwr' W W B wiUi b»«>»«ct by 

■ome standard, securltiea. 

By midday when a total of mora than 
bsU a mUUon shares iMd boon coaobad. 
Uaton Paotne reflected tta* atfaeta of hoary 
•oiliat by coins uuder taat week'* cloatng 
quotatlona with Increased heavtoeaa In tho 
coppers. Reading and I>htsh Valley took 
'the lead with extensive baying of both 
Issues to-the accompaniment of reports that 
the lone deferred deolslo'b of the United 
States supreme court In the Reading case 
might be rendered soon. 

The assignment by the court of the so- 
oalled inter-mountaIn rate case Over the full 
term was sometftlng of a dtsappointment. 

Transactions in the late session were be- 
low those of the morning and prices evinced 
a tendency to yield, except in the coalers 
and minor specialtlea In the final deal- 
ings a demand for American Smelting and 
Rock Island, common and preferred. Im- 
parted a degree of aetlTlty. 

Call money did not get above i per cent, 
and supply was In excess of the demand. 
Tlm<> rates hardened partly in response to 
out of town withdrawals and some further 
strengthening of local reserves. 

The bond market was Irregular. Total

Mr. Patten's Aotlon in 1909 Is Described 
as "Boixeficent" 

WASHINGTON. AprU S. — ^%\'hen James A. 
Patten operated In Way wiioai. In 1909 he 
did not conduct a t or^irr si-veral prominent 
millers told the ho;!.-!* coniiiilUee on Agri- 
culture today. Instead of cornering wheat 
and holding for enorrisous profits, Mr. Pat- 
ten performed a "beneficent action," ac- 
cording to John C. F. Merrill, president of 
llie council of grain exchanges, who acted 
a8 Hpiikesman for the Chicago Hoard of 
Ti«iur uiid uthei- wJioAl s.nd corn exchanges. 

Mr. Patten was exonerated from having 
collected undue .iroflts by his deal In May 
wheat, Mr. -Merrill said, but he closed It out 
In April and by doing so, sold at a time 
and a price that prevented the exportation 
of wheat and consequently the Importation 
of grain to supply American consumption. 
The millers got thn big profit, Mr. .Merrill 
said, and raised the price of wheat £6 cents 
over the price Patten got.

follow your Nose 

An old proverb says: "Follow your nose, and 
you will follow your right road". 

The aroma of a good whisky is an indication of 
■ its quality. Notice the connoisseur, who smells 
before he tastes. 

Corby's "Special Selected" Rye Whisky 

posscs.scs an agreeable, delicious aroma that wafts 
to the senses the extrafted goodness of the richr^S 
grain from which it is distilled. 

Such a fragrance can only he produced in a whisky 
of the very highest type — thoroughly distilled 
and carefully matured to give it the necessary 

Judging by its aroma alone, an expert will un- 
erringly choose Corby's "Special Scleci d" as 
THE BEST, from among several other whiskies. 
Try this experiment yourself. I'hcn taste. The 
flavor will appeal to your palate, as the aroma 
appeals to your nose.
